MK Nachman Shai: Netanyahu Must 'Split with Settlers'

MK Nachman Shai (Kadima) said on Thursday morning that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu "faces a test of being considered reliable by the outside world. His proclamations and declarations have not engendered a positive response among the Palestinians or the international community."

"In the confrontation between him and the settlers, Netanyahu must prove his commitment to the building freeze even at the price of an irreparable rift between him and the settlers. Either that, or the 'as if' game and the promises will remain on paper only," Shai said.
